Halloween on the Canary Islands - ghosts and mysteries




Halloween with its pumpkins, costumes and so on has become very popular among the population of the Canary Islands. But also before that they had their own traditional celebration the night before All Saints' Day (the 31st October) - the "Fiesta de los Finados". Children went from house to house asking for "santos" ("saints", referring to dried fruits). In the evening the family would come together, eat roasted chestnuts, sweets called "huesos de santo" ("Bones of The Saints"), drink anise and honey rum and share anectdotes about dead members of the family. At night there would be dance and music around the town. Nowadays the tradition of the "Finados" is still alive in a few towns on Tenerife and Gran Canaria, like San Mateo, Santa Brígida, Vega de San Mateo and Vegeta.
